Denver-based Sam Pine has unveiled his latest single ‘Why Can't U?’ and it is pure sonic bliss. Melding genre-exploring sounds including dashes of psych pop, bedroom synth and even elements of jazz, Sam Pine evokes a refreshing modern sound with hits of nostalgia.
Inspired by sudden life changes experienced over the pandemic, ‘Why Can’t U?’ is about Sam's relocation to his hometown of Denver, Colorado and the impact that physical distance had on his close relationships in Los Angeles. The single is a unique blend of rich and experimental sounds, it is reminiscent of Still Woozy meets Bloc Party.
The track is off of his debut full-length ‘Evergreen’, which is a collection of multi-faceted songs written from the artist's childhood bedroom over quarantine that explore extreme episodes of anxiety during a social revolution, relationships, and introspective thoughts as a young adult.
Speaking candidly about the new single, Sam explained, "I had relationships that felt very tested and at some points exposed. This pandemic really had some harsh truth and the hook of the song askes whoever listens or at least in my perspective the girl I was seeing 'why can’t you be the one for me?' It's that classic long-distance narrative but with my own spin."
Sam Pine is a twenty-two-year-old Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist, Singer-Songwriter born and raised in Denver, Colorado.
